Jun 27, 2006
Lenovo has unveiled a new generation of Windows 11 PCs to help people navigate the new normal of hybrid life. The seventh generation of Yoga devices are designed to help connect, consume, create and collaborate from home, school, the office and beyond. Lenovo’s Yoga 2-in-1 convertible laptops were pioneers in opening possibilities for users to flip and fold from work to play. Since then, Yoga has expanded to multiple form factors, including ultra-slim clamshell laptops and desktop computers. The Yoga Slim 7i Pro X and Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (known as Lenovo Slim 7i Pro X and Lenovo Slim 7 Pro X in the U.S.), enable creation anywhere, anytime. [caption id="attachment_177168" align="aligncenter" width="771"]Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X PCs open and flat back to back Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro X[/caption] Next-gen processors power them with up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU with NVIDIA Studio certification. Lenovo’s X Power custom performance tuning [1] pushes the laptop beyond the benchmarks of maximum CPU and GPU performance in such a thin and light chassis. At less than 3.5 pounds, these thin and light machines are built to be on the move, while packing the performance needed for digital content creation. Done creating and ready to jump into a game? When you buy this laptop, you’ll get an Xbox Game Pass free for three months. Create, entertain, or game on the 14.5-inch 3K 120Hz refresh Lenovo PureSight display (with optional touch), featuring an accurate color palette and richer hues. The display has a hardware calibrated 100% sRGB gamut coverage with 100% sRGB gamut volume, as well as TÜV Hardware Blue Light certification to help reduce eye strain [2]. Create content on desktop 1, and get back to your favorite show on desktop 2 with the Lenovo PureSight display and the multiple desktops of Windows 11. The 14-inch Yoga Slim 7i Pro X (known as Lenovo Slim 7i Pro X in the U.S.) with Intel Core processor starts at $1,699. The 14-inch Yoga Slim 7 Pro X (known as Lenovo Slim 7 Pro X in the U.S.) with AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processor starts at $1,499. Both are expected to be available starting in June. [3] The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon (known as Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon in the U.S.) fuses powerful mobility with durable style. At under 2.2 pounds and with a chassis as thin as 0.58 inches at its thinnest point, this device is made with the rugged resilience of aerospace-grade magnesium alloy reinforced with multi-layer carbon fiber. Its comfort-edge design is built for ease of carrying. You can personalize it further with three contemporary two-tone color options [4] and an edge-to-edge keyboard with larger trackpad. Intel Evo, now featuring 12th Gen Intel Core Processors, helps it perform at its peak potential, AI Engine+ enhanced with self-adjusting fan speeds and performance to match the user’s power and battery needs. Create and binge content virtually anytime and anywhere with a Lenovo PureSight 13.3-inch 2.5k optional touchscreen featuring ultra-smooth 90Hz refresh rates and a taller 16:10 aspect ratio. Windows 11’s Snap Assist adds more options for organizing your desktop, which works well with the laptops’ increased vertical space. No matter what you’re doing – keep track of everything you’re working on wherever you are. The Lenovo PureSight display offers an expanded color palette and more accurate, hardware calibrated hues of 100% sRGB color space and 100% color volume with 8-bit color, as well as TÜV Hardware Low Blue Light certification made for less eye strain [2].

Both are expected to be available starting in May. [caption id="attachment_177177" align="aligncenter" width="784"]Lenovo Legion Slim 7 open and lying flat Lenovo Legion Slim 7[/caption] The Lenovo Legion Slim 7i and 7 join the 16-inch QHD gaming category as Lenovo Legion’s thinnest and lightest gaming laptops yet and are now available in a taller 16:10 display. Their build is light and svelte at 4.4 pounds and 0.63 inches, thanks to its aluminum and magnesium aerospace-grade metal unibody casing, while taking up the same overall footprint as a 15-inch laptop. The Lenovo Legion Slim 7i comes with up to the latest 12th Gen Intel Core H Series. Users will need fewer adapters for the road with the laptop’s improved and dedicated rear I/O dashboard with HDMI 2.1, while enjoying unprecedented range with a massive 99.99Whr capacity battery and up to 135 Whr USB Type-C Fast Charging [5].

Now visually thinner-looking than the previous generation at as thin as 0.75 inches, it packs up to the latest graphics, processors and storage into a 5.5-pound chassis. The laptop’s design features an improved hinge and I/O dashboard. It’s crafted from aluminum and magnesium aerospace-grade metal into a unibody design. An environmental RGB system, powered by Legion Spectrum, with ambient effects on the keyboard and trim sync up with the content displayed on its screen. The Lenovo Legion 7i features up to 12th Gen Intel Core HX Series, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU (up to 175W TGP) and DDR5 memory. These are all tuned for maximum performance via the Lenovo Legion A.I. Engine 2.0. This A.I. engine can balance GPU and CPU resource output in real time to deliver best performance for each game. Its A.I. calibration can also intelligently boost the Lenovo Legion Coldfront 4.0 thermal system to cool down the GPU and CPU, while the laptop’s vapor chamber technology expands the boundaries of what’s possible in a gaming laptop for desktop-level performance CPUs, with up to 115W of thermal capacity without throttling. The Lenovo Legion 7i with Intel Core processor starts at $2,449. [3] The Lenovo Legion 7 with AMD Ryzen processor starts at $2,059. [3] Find out more about the Lenovo Legion lineup.
